This is my last creation! It's a restomod because I like old frames with new parts especially if the frames are cool like this one!

The weight is 5.36 kg ready to ride, the lightest Klein ever?
I've other upgrades ready to go under 5 kg but I'm already happy with the result!

Here you can find the parts list :

Yes original paint scheme (Patriot), only the fork has a custom paint to match the frame (I've still got the original fork that has got the same paint but it's too heavy for my project).

Really great to see. A genuine WW project beautifully executed. Very cool LIGHTWEIGHT bike.

Unique and it certainly makes a statement! After my initial recoil from the overwhelmingly patriotic theme, I really like it. Klein made some gorgeous machines and you've done a fine job integrating old and new. Congratulations! Well done!!!

Certainly a unique bike but for me the stem angle and spacer stack along with the slightly odd (to my eye) handlebar angle let it down.

Thanks guys :thumbup:
Who knows Klein geometry can understand the stem/handlebar setup (according to my biomechanic specs). :mrgreen:

Mauro, you cannot do that to a Klein! :shock: Those parts should be on a Parlee or some other carbon frame of below 800g, which would otherwise make a sub 5kg bike. That frame is very cool though! :thumbup:
